Toggle Admin Mode

5 posts in this topic

When activated this tool will set the computer to AutoLogin with the local admin account.

When deactivated it will disable autologon and set the logon screen to display the username and domain of the user that initiated the program.

It also writes to a log file who activates and deactivates the tool and when.

I wrote it at work for my mobile sales force. I don't want them working with admin rights cause I know they'll break the machines.

But sometimes they need additional permissions to install printers for example.

The log is nice because if they decide to leave it on and break the machine I can prove it :)

very insecure because you are writing password information directly into the registry .. in plain text

You're right, but you'd have to know where to look, and my users aren't to smart have trouble turning on their machines (literally)

I could have written a run once value that silently deactivated the feature including deleting the password upon login.

Thanks,

Kenny
